Would You Use Social Media To Reconnect With A Potential Bae Like Leslie Jones?
While some of us may rely on serendipity or fate, others, like Leslie Jones, rely on social media to reconnect with potential baes who got away too soon.
Yesterday, the comedienne went out on a courageous limb and tweeted that while she attended the Governor’s Ball with friends, she found herself flirting with a cute bartender from Alabama who served her Southern hospitality, among other things. Unfortunately, Leslie’s friends were ready to go before she could exchange numbers with him and instead of fuming about the missed opportunity, Leslie decided to send out a search team for her love interest.
Since she posted the tweet, it’s been retweeted 152 times and favorited another 2,399. Because of the traction it received, many fans have asked Leslie if they can be invited to the wedding or even told her to step her game up.
But if you were in Leslie’s position would you ever try to find someone you had a romantic connection online? I wouldn’t necessarily tweet out a search for him but if we attended the same event and didn’t have mutual friends, I would look through the event’s hashtag to see if a photo of him appeared.
